I'd disagree with you on that point, simply because successfully abusing DMCA claims to take down content is a pretty ongoing problem and while this incident isn't worthy of being made its own story, it is one good use-case example.


Agreed wholeheartedly, but it *is* being used as just its own story. Not one single person has carried any of this beyond Zoe to the bigger things. No one has pulled in other instances of this and built them into anything resembling a cohesive case. It's just a big, stinky tower of Zoe bashing.

I wonder if there is some kind of NDA trying to keep it hush, like Jeff Gerstmann's GameStop firing.

100% agreed. This should have been the launching point to spark a wider discussion of the problems facing the billion dollar industry. But it isn't, because for whatever reason people are still hung up on some girl and a burger joint.

You realize that is because we only have proof for Zoe right? The reason Zoe is at the center of all the issues discussed, is because we got a huge infodump of logs about Zoe from her ex boyfriend. If we had anything at all resembling proof for any other totally obvious but unprovable BS that game journalists do, people would be jumping over that.

There is no reason to feel bad for, or defend her. Everything that is happening she brought onto herself with her actions.

The reason I have stayed away from the DMCA issue for the most part is that it is not provable that it was Zoe that did it, just likely. Why would I concentrate resources on something with no proof?

If you thought it was only 3, you missed a lot apparently.

The censorship should make you care. Kotaku, giantbomb, RPS, escapist, destructoid, arstechnica, 4chan, reddit have all been censored. GameFAQs is one of the few sites that is not censoring information. If there was no censorship, no one would have cared longer then a day at most, but the Streisand effect took place.

GFAQs mods suck.

It doesn't make me care because I never cared about the game or the person who was making it.
